Elegant Reindeer

It's time for my first Christmas card of the year - a CAS card made for a few challenges.

I trimmed a piece of white card so it was slightly smaller than the front of the card blank, rounded the corners and die cut a stitched circle from the centre.  The panel was attached to the centre of the card.  I die cut a stitched circle from a snippet of paper and inlaid it into the circle.  The 'Elegant Reindeer' was die cut from black card and attached to the lower corner of the card.  The swirl on the reindeer's body was die cut from a tiny snippet of red card and inlaid.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white matt card blank
     My Favorite Things 'Inside and Out Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics'  and Creative Dies 'Elegant Reindeer' dies
     Snippets of white matt card, Lili of the Valley 'Classic Christmas' paper, black matt and red textured card

I am entering the following challenges:
     CAS Christmas - Silhouette
     Christmas Kickstart Challenge - Such a Deer
     Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Feature a Creature
     Fezzwig's Festive Frolics - Anything Festive Goes
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 394

Beautiful - great inlaying of the die cuts (and I presume that means you'll be able to make another card with a red reindeer and black inlay)

Brilliant card Kath - I'd know that LOTV snippet anywhere! Love the deer and so clever to inlay the red swirl too.
